Bringing with him over a decade of experience as a licensed pharmacist, Paul Cole is acutely aware of the importance for attention to detail, healthcare protocols, and service, making him an ideal addition to the VCS Board of Directors. As one of the Board’s newest directors, having joined in the fall of 2021, Paul works collaboratively with fellow Board members to provide general oversight of VCS’s operations, strategic direction, and community outreach.
Prior to joining the VCS Board, Paul had no affiliation with the organization. He had randomly come across the website and was immediately impressed with the VCS mission, with particular intrigue in the Village Music and Arts program. From there, he knew he wanted to get involved – and so, he did.
“I want to lend my healthcare and business knowledge and experience in whatever ways I can to benefit VCS,” adds Paul.
Paul is currently a Pharmacist and Certified Specialist in Poison Information for the Washington Poison Center. He maintains a PharmD from University of Washington and is pursuing his Master of Business Administration from Eastern Washington University.
In his free-time, Paul enjoys working out, watching Seattle sports, and anything that involves food. He resides with his wife, Monica, and two dogs, Wallace and Piper.
